it's pretty simple to do actually.

in your actionscript on the button that submits the form put the following code...

:::::::::::::::::::::::::

on (release) {
    getURL ("file.cfm", "", "POST");
}

:::::::::::::::::::::::::

so on release it will go to the file.cfm>
which will then post the variables recaling them in the usual way <cfoutput>#myformvariable#</cfoutput>

I'd suggest downloading the zipped fla file that is on that site.  for some reason it won't even let me view the movie.  i know of another site that i'll check out real fast for a tutorial on that and i'll post back here if i find something.

here you go!

:::::::::::::

on (release) {
    loadVariablesNum ("file.cfm", 0, "POST");
        gotoAndPlay (10);
}

::::::::::::

replace the gotoAndPlay (10); with whatever frame you want to go to next.
